Sausage and peppers has always been a staple in my family. Whether my mom is serving it over rice or as a grinder it was always something that my family loved. Recently I have gained a disgust toward cooked peppers. I’m not sure where it came from but one night I thought maybe I’d try getting rid of it and made my mom’s Sausage and Peppers. Unfortunately for me, I still hate cooked peppers; fortunately for my boyfriend, he now loves Sausage and Peppers so I have to pick around the peppers. I usually use red or green peppers but if I am using a Hot Italian Sausage and want to sweeten up the dish I will substitute an orange pepper into the mix.
Sausage and Peppers
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 package Mild or Hot Italian Sausages
3 peppers (Red or Green)
Slice peppers and onions long ways, cleaning out insides of the peppers. Set aside and drizzle olive oil in bottom of pan and put full links in sauté pan to brown. Flip to make sure all sides get color. Once browned, about 5 minutes, remove sausage links and lower heat to low. Cut sausage links into 1/2 inch thick slices and return to pan at medium-low heat. Add peppers and onions and cover. Let vegetables cook with the sausage for 12-15 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes. Onions will turn translucent and peppers will be soft. Season with black peppers and salt. Serve on a grinder roll or over rice.
